3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from 12 fl oz bottle. Cloudy golden yellow-orange with dissipating off-white head. Aroma has some raspberry and yeast. Taste same with some biscuity malt. Light-medium body. Finishes a little bit dry. Raspberry flavour is fairly muted, balance is okay. Middle of the road as far as raspberry ales go in my opinion.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden brew. Smell is herbs and finnish raspberry licorice. Flavor has candied raspberries, herbs, savory flavor. Seriously there is a salty meat flavor that destroys this brew.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from a bottle. Has a clear golden hue with a quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is faintly raspberry, and this is probably the best part of the beer. The flavor has hardly any raspberry, but more of a wheat. Even then, there isnít much. Carbonation is low to nothing, and the beer leans on the watery side. Unfortunately this just isnít a very good beer, and I happen to like fruit beers.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Danís. The pour is really ale-like over fruit beer-ish. Itís a foggy orange-ish beast with a decent white head and no lace to be found anywhere. The nose is quite good. There is a nice raspberry dominance and it keeps in touch up with a good sweet maltiness on the back end. The flavor is where it starts to fall apart. There is a light fruitiness on the front end, but then a sharp bitterness takes over and it tries to finish like a cross between a Belgian and and an IPA. It started with so much promise and then fizzled out when it mattered most.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle, decent wheat beer, not heavily flavored raspberry taste. Light body, thin feel, heavily carbonated, overall not bad, not sure it falls in the fruit beer category.

Bottle. Pretty bad beer. Should you desire this style, good on you, but this is not a beer.
